I would be interested in hearing from anyone who could expand the above list of Pyrahs in my husbands family.

Charlotte Pyrah great-grandmother on maternal side of the family. Born in North Bierley, Bradford, West Yorkshire, England in 1879 by the time she married Tom Taylor in 1898 she was living in Chapel Hill in Huddersfield and moved to Castlegate where Tom was living (believe this was a pub called Brewers Boy). They had Phyllis (1899), Alice (1906, grandmother & youngest) and in between Robin, Ida, Horace and Alfred no dates for these.

Henry Pyrah was Charlottes father he was also born in 1842 in North Bierley, Bradford. He married Ada Muff (don't know when). Apart from Charlotte who was the youngest they had Ralph Hodgson (1864), Henry Edgar (1867), James (1869), Alice Mary (1873), William (1877).

Henry died before Charlotte married and I believe at this point they may have moved to Huddersfield as at the 1881census Henry is alive and they are living in Bowling, Bradford. By 1891 Ada, James, Alice and Charlotte had moved to Huddersfield. William was I think in the Reformatory of Junvenile Offenders in Adel in 1891 don't know where he was after that and I don't know what the offence was.
In 1901 Ralph was still in Bradford don't know where he was in 1891.

Henrys father was Daniel according to 1851 census he was born in North Bierley and was married to Mary Hodgson. I think Daniel died around 1851/2 after the census.
Other children they had were Martha, Susanah and Emma.
Although all were born before 1851 only Martha and Susanah appear on this census. I found Emma on the IGI on familysearch.

So apart from Pyrah I'm also interested in Ada Muff and Mary Hodgson.
Marys parents were William Hodgson & Hanah (don't have a surname).

Thanks in advance for any info.
